We are Epic Mind
A Dutch progressive metal band based in the city of Utrecht. The music features heavy guitar riffs, catchy bass lines, tantalizing drum patterns, versatile and powerfull vocals, and a touch of keyboards. The songs vary from intimate and sensitive to brutal and intense, using technical and mind-blowing riffs along the way.
Epic Mind was formed in the year 2008 by Raoul Van Oosten (guitars) and Nathaniël Sonneveld (bass) after terminating the band Serendipity, with Folkert van Blom (drums) and Leon Vonk (vocals) joining in 2009 and 2012, respectively. The band initially focused on playing live and, in 2014, reached the semi-finals of the Metal Battle. At that time focus was shifted towards writing songs, and the recording process for the debut album was started early 2015. During the final stages of recording the album, in 2016, co-founder Nathaniël Sonneveld passed the torch as a bass player to Jari Stoppelenburg.
